Tell John Boehner: Remove Michele Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee

People for the American Way logoRep. Michele Bachmann has been peddling Islamophobic conspiracy theories about a top aide to Hillary Clinton helping the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrate the federal government, and has implied that President Obama is working to spread global Sharia law.

Someone like this should not hold a seat on a congressional committee that is entrusted with classified information. Join Daily Kos and our partners at People For the American Way as we call on House Speaker John Boehner to remove Michele Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee.

Dear Speaker Boehner:

In service to ugly Islamophobic fear mongering, Rep. Michele Bachmann continues unabated in her unfounded and irresponsible attacks on dedicated public servants -- a witch hunt that has targeted Huma Abedin, a key aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and now includes allegations that President Obama may be aiding the rise of global Sharia law.

Conspiracy theories and religious McCarthyism should have no place in our government, especially in the House Intelligence Committee, on which Rep. Bachmann sits.

Please remove Rep. Bachmann from her seat on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence immediately. Members of the House Intelligence Committee are entrusted with classified information that affects the safety and security of all Americans. That information should not be in the hands of anyone with such a disregard for honesty, misunderstanding of national security, and lack of respect for his or her fellow public servants.
